Gehot, Jean or Joseph

Gehot, Jean or Joseph, Belgian violinist and composer; b. Brussels, April 8, 1756; d. in the U.S., c. 1820. He went to London after 1780, where he publ. A Treatise on the Theory and Practice of Music (1784), The Art of Bowing the Violin (1790), and Complete Instructions for Every Musical Instrument (1790). In 1792, he went to the U.S. and gave concerts in N.Y., presenting his Overture in 12 movements, expressive of a voyage from England to America. He then played violin at the City Concerts in Philadelphia, under the management of Reinagle and Capron. However, he failed to prosper in America. Most of his works were publ. in London, among them 17 string quartets, 12 string trios, and 24 “military pieces’” for 2 Clarinets, 2 Horns, and Bassoon.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
